Catholic University of Daegu
The St. Justino Seminary, from which the university claims descent, opened in Daegu on November 1, 1914, having been founded in May of that year. The first four rectors of the school were French missionaries, the first being a Fr. Chargeboeuf, also known by his Korean name Song Duck-mang. The first Korean rector, Fr. Choi Min-sun, who took up the post in 1945, was also the last rector of the seminary, which closed due to the turbulent events of that year, sending most of its students home in May but remaining open until December to allow the final class of 4 to graduate.
In 1952, the Hyosung Women's Junior College was established, offering instruction to 150 students in the fields of music, literature, and home economics. The following year, it became a four-year college, also offering instruction in pharmacology. The college continued to expand steadily in the following years, establishing its graduate school in 1972 and gaining university status in 1980.
Daegu Catholic University Medical Center
Since Daegu Catholic University Medical Center was opened by the Daegu Catholic Foundation for the enhancement of public health, with its central mission to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, it has undergone extensive development and change. All the staff and faculty are doing their best to accomplish our vision, which is to be the 21st century's leading university hospital, based on curing the whole person and providing advanced health care services. We will lead a human oriented hospital keeping pace with a PT (People Technology) age. Every effort is being made to provide a good workplace for faculty and patients by being conscious of their comfort and security. Of course we will continue to keep excellent man power, continuous education, and invest in advanced medical equipment. Daegu Catholic University Medical Center will give its best not only to cure the patient based on the love and service of the Catholic mission, but also with a true heart. Once more we promise to take care of our neglected neighbors with love and with a patient oriented hospital that serves a patient like a member of our family.
